Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Frank has checked into a cheap hotel with the intention of using his pistol to commit suicide there. However, just as he is putting the pistol to his head, a lengthy earthquake begins, and makes it impossible for him to aim as he had intended to. The earthquake also causes him to meet a prostitute who has been working in the next room, and they become acquainted. On more than one occasion as they talk, he has reason to repeat his request: Don't Call Me Frankie.
